Dearly Beloved I greet and bless you in the name of our Creator, Maker, and ever unforgettable Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Job 42:2, “I know that You can do all things and that no plan of Yours can be thwarted.”
From the above context we understand that Our God is able to do all things. So Job believed that God is all powerful and can do anything for him and nothing that he has decided to do for him can be hindered. Our God is all powerful. He created the world by His word. He made the moon and the stars. He calls the stars by name. The Sun to rule the day and Moon to rule the night. No one can go near the Sun. The Sun is so powerful that the Moon derives its light from the sun. Who can understand the power of God who has made the Earth and let it hang in the atmosphere. If God could create all this by His power then you imagine how powerful He must be. There is power in His word. For He spoke and it was done. He commanded and it stood fast. He sends His word and heals the sick. It is the power of God that has established this Earth or stabilised it. You need to understand the power of the Sea Waves. In case someone gets caught in the swirling waves, no one can rescue him, from the power of the waves. They will perish in the Sea. So think how powerful our God is, who has kept such power in the Waves of the Sea.
We hear of hail storm, floods, cyclone and other disaster that sometimes strike the land. We see them rush with great power and speed that they destroy huge trees, buildings and many structures. Who has given them this power? It works in the power of God Almighty who created the Earth and Heaven. The Wind which blows has great power. It can carry away anything and destroy everything. God has put into the Wind such great power It took Job some time to come to an understanding that he was being afflicted and this affliction will not last long. He couldn’t question the mighty hand of the omniscient and omnipotent God. For a time, all Job had was a shallow knowledge of God but later he received a deeper and more intimated awareness of Who God truly is. He realised that God was all powerful. Though Job’s whole world had collapsed in one day and he became pitiably derided by his friends and the laughing stock of the neighbourhood, Job, believed in God? Job came to a realisation that God knows all things and God can do anything and that God must be trusted, unquestioningly, to remain in charge of everything without interference or accusations from those, whose understanding of the deep things the Lord God, are so limited.
Through this message God wants to convey to all of you who are reading this message, that God is powerful and He is able to do all things. And what He has decided to do for you and your children He will surely do and nothing can stop Him from doing it. God does everything in a particular time and season. He has great plans for you. In case He gives the blessing before you are fit or capable of handling the blessing, it will be of no use. He postpones the blessings until you are thoroughly fit to handle the blessing, so that you can enjoy the blessings of God. Therefore though Job was being afflicted he had great hope in God. He had lost his ten children, he had lost all his cattle, wealth, high position in the society and his body was filled with boils. He was unable to face his friends and relatives. They thought he had done some secret sin, so God has punished him. But Job knew that God who had afflicted him will soon deliver him from his affliction. Job finally came to an understanding that God can do anything and nothing that He plans is impossible. But to reach this level of understanding, he had to humble himself, accept the current situation, and simply wait on the Lord for the right time. Job’s realization of the power of God instils faith and trust, that God desires for all His children to understand … that God can do anything, and God has the right to do whatsoever He will – and nothing that He plans, and purposes is impossible – for He alone is God.
I know of such people who thought they were capable of doing great things, but later when things became a flop, they would say, “I have come to this poor state because I did not walk with wisdom. I have lost everything because of poor knowledge.”So you need to walk with wisdom and with discretion to be successful. God knows when and how, He should bless you. Job by experience and sheer faith believes that God who inflicted him is able to deliver him from all his affliction. He wonders when there will be a change in his life. So He says, “I shall wait patiently for the right time.”This means that he knew that, at the appointed time God will deliver him from all his troubles. And He is confident that, his own eyes, will witness his good days in life. How about you dear Brother and Sister ? Do you believe that good days are ahead of you? May be today you are struggling in life because of some affliction. Is it because of huge debts? Have you to settle your daughter, but you don’t have the needed resource. May be because of Corona you had lost your job and you are at the moment looking out for a good job? Are you troubled because of your disobedient children? Whatever it may be, have faith like Job , that God is able to do all things and surely the end will come to all your sufferings when you look up to God. Commit your ways unto the Lord trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Father God we thank you for making us understand the power of God. Help us to realize our mistakes and have faith in God that He is able to do all things. May we learn to wait upon God for the right time, to receive God’s blessing. Teach us to walk with wisdom. May we witness good days in our life too. Bless us , as you blessed Job with a double portion of blessing.
